So the jolly nice people at Wikio (http://www.wikio.co.uk/) have this month kindly offered me a sneak preview of the new beer & wine blog rankings for March.

1Pencil & Spoon +1 (http://www.pencilandspoon.com/)2Pete Brown's Blog +1 (http://petebrown.blogspot.com/)3Beer Reviews +3 (http://www.beerreviews.co.uk/)4Master Brewer at Adnams +13 (http://masterbrewer.adnams.co.uk/)5Bibendum Wine (http://www.bibendum-times.co.uk/)6Zythophile (http://zythophile.wordpress.com/)7Drinking Outside The Box (http://www.simonwoods.com/)8Reluctant Scooper (http://www.reluctantscooper.co.uk/)9Sour Grapes (http://www.sourgrapes.ie/)10The Wine Conversation (http://wineconversation.com/)11Spittoon (http://www.spittoon.biz/)12Tandleman's Beer Blog -4 (http://www.tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.com/)13Are You Tasting the Pith? -4 (http://thebeerboy.blogspot.com/)14Called to the bar (http://maltworms.blogspot.com/)15Raising the Bar +31 (http://raisethebeerbar.blogspot.com/)16Rabid About Beer -6 (http://rabidbarfly.blogspot.com/)17EpicBeerKel's BeeRevolution (http://beerevolution.wordpress.com/)18The Good Stuff +4 (http://goodpeopleeats.blogspot.com/)19The Pub Curmudgeon -12 (http://pubcurmudgeon.blogspot.com/)20Real Brewing at the Sharp End (http://brewingreality.blogspot.com/)Ranking made by Wikio (http://www.wikio.co.uk/)

Plenty of movers & shakers this month but the first thing I noticed was BrewDog's (http://www.brewdog.com/) absence from the rankings, I have no idea whether this is deliberate omission or not. They were usually hovering around the top spot & I had heard rumblings from other bloggers that they felt BrewDog's blog is an advertorial & doesn't belong in the rankings, so maybe Wikio have addressed this but I'm not sure.

I am delighted with how my blog rose 31 places to 15th in the rankings but I believe this may be a temporary effect of the huge interest my post regarding Kevin (http://raisethebeerbar.blogspot.com/2011/02/camra-campaign-for-real-alienation.html)created.

Congratulations to Mark from Pencil & Spoon for taking top spot this month I particularly enjoyed his BrewDog (http://www.pencilandspoon.com/2011/03/brewdog-brewery-tour.html) post recently.

Also a mention for Andy from Beer Reviews (http://www.beerreviews.co.uk/) which climbed to the lofty position of 3rd! Well done Andy!

And a mention for Leigh at The Good Stuff (http://goodpeopleeats.blogspot.com/), for sticking around the top 20 for his informative & enjoyable musings on a wide range of beers wherever he may find them, Leigh's blog is Leeds longest running beer blog & it's nice to see his dedication paying off.

So there you have it, BrewDog gone from the rankings, do you agree or disagree?https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/532306293614525754-5732410853129907187?l=raisethebeerbar.blogspot.com
